Assessment:

Blending Dashell Hammett's hardboiled narrative style with elements of crime procedural investigation, political intrigue, and revolutionary philosophy into a mysticism-steeped high fantasy setting might seem like an overly busy combination, but The Birth of Death pulls it off with finesse. An investigation into a series of kidnappings puts elvish Royal Ranger Artimus Atyrmirid on the trail of a powerful demon building and army at the outskirts of a hidden village. Snappy writing keeps the action moving, and satisfying doses of lore, bolstered by appendices with maps and a glossary, will keep readers wanting to return to the world of Evorath for more.
